Wordpress

WordPress is among the most used blogging platform in the world. There are tens of millions of users with perhaps millions of plugins and themes to go along with it.

When people think of WordPress, they think of blogging software.  However, millions of business class websites that you visit everyday use WordPress as their backbone, and you’ve probably not been able to tell the difference.  Many small businesses are opting to have inexpensive websites developed for their company using the free and open sourced software, rather than paying for custom web development.  With just a few simple plugins, you can transform any WordPress website into a professional... (more...)

Web Design

Many people eventually started to see WordPress as a SEO friendly CMS that could be used for much more than blogging. I started using it as a CMS for multiple websites, making use of its categories, pages, and static post features in ways that were not seen as traditional.

Rating

I haven’t updated my original WordPress plugin Comment Karma in years. For a while it wasn’t working on newer versions of WordPress and was officially discontinued. However, because of the goodness of open source, Wealthy Netizen decided to take up the task of restoring it. It now works on the newest versions of WordPress and has lots of new goodies. What is it?
